Case Management

Mountain Home Montana’s Case Managers have countless roles and responsibilities. Case managers advocate on the behalf of anyone utilizing Mountain Home for help.

This includes:

  • Helping connect clients to primary care, mental health care, dental – and they work alongside the client as well as with other community resources to maximize care and success such as:
  • Finding adequate childcare
  • Connect to nutrition, parenting, and other classes
  • Legal/court paperwork and support
  • Scholarship paperwork and support
  • Obtaining or maintaining benefits
  • Budgeting all income, fees, and debt
  • Helping enroll client’s children in school or with other specialized agencies
  • Help connect client to basic needs, transportation, and more

Case Managers meet with house residents weekly, and outpatient and apartment residents on an as-needed basis. Case Managers are at Mountain Home to provide all around support and assistance for our young moms and their children.


Child Care

Mountain Home’s newly updated childcare center, Ariya’s Circle opened to clients in January, 2021. This center combines trauma-informed child care with early childhood education practices to create a welcoming space for Mountain Home babies and toddlers to grow and learn. In December, we broke ground for a new child care facility that will be attached to what is currently our Community Center. Construction was completed in June and Ariya’s Circle’s new on-site location opened to ten full-time and two drop-in spots for Mountain Home families to receive high-quality childcare.
